Removing Ivy

Posted: 03/05/2014 at 14:05

I think your ivy looks beautiful cascading down like that, can't you just cut it back where it annoys? You won't find anything else that does such a good cover-up job!

Orange bubbly mould on tree stump

Whichever, it's not likely to be harmful, it's just part of the natural rotting down process of the dead tree stump. It won't spread to live plants.

I bet it came from the bag of compost that you used to cover the ground - probably made with wood chippings. Can you show us a picture of the problem area?

orange evergreen plants help

Berberis darwinii is a spiny shrub with orange flowers and it's evergreen.

Chameleon plant

It's a marsh plant, and no relation to ground elder. I tried and failed to grow it next to a stream, the banks were not wet enough for it.

Not Heartsease, it's a cultivated variety. It may not be a named cultivar.

More identifying...

Both the first and the second photos are of Thrift.

Can anyone identify this weed???

Yes, Geranium endressii or Geranium x oxonianum. Bit of a thug in my garden!

Not sure if it's the same as the first photos though - it doesn't have thin roots, it has thick red-brown woody rhizomes.

I wrote a guide for a local group, see if that helps:
